Can You Read it? (not one of mine...)



Nancy from the Gen-Newbie mailing list was having difficulty reading the back of this photograph, so I offered to post it here for her.

Anyone able to read it or having a guess can post a reply below.

Thanks.

Could someone translate what was said?

the front was a photo of My g'father. I wonder if he was sending it to relatives in Norway. I think he may have had intentions of sending it to my g'mother's parents. I have a piece of paper, written by my mother, indicating that her mother's parents names were Johannes and Louisa. My g'moher used the name "Bjertness" when she immigrated.

hope I've given you enough info.
